No Guts, No Glory

I know I tend to make a lot of jokes at the expense of fashion models, here at Yarn Yuck.  (It's hard not to, honestly.)  But every now and then I come across something I can't help but admire-- or at least sympathize with.

Such is the case with today's photo.  You cannot resist applauding the courage of this brave model who attempts to look intense-- some might even say sexy-- despite being swathed in a double layer of novelty yarn. 

Sure, the yarn's got confetti-like, carnival-colored slubs embedded in it.  And yeah, she knows the whole thing looks pretty silly.  But the piece was clearly designed with sauciness in mind, and she's going to do everything she can to deliver.

That's gotta take some gumption!
